I found this great advertisement for Bates in a magazine from 1942. They made the prettiest woven cotton bedspreads and curtains. We used to have Disney ones on our beds when we were little. I think my sister still has one - it is MUCH the worse for wear these days.
This is a bedspread I've had for years - if you click on the advertisement, above, you will see that this is the same pattern in a different colorway. I thought that was pretty cool when I discovered it! This tulip design is on a narrow curtain panel I have. I'm not positive it is a Bates brand, but the style is very similar to theirs.And here is an advertisement from 1962 for a totally different style in white - still nice, still well made - just different :
I'm still hoping to find more of these lovely and colorful woven cotton blankets. Wish me luck!
